Mangarino Road repairs to start this month

13 May 2024, 3:49 PM

 

About 19,000 tonnes of material will soon be transported to Mangarino Road in Te Kūiti to repair the road which was significantly damaged during a storm event in September last year.

Repairs to Mangarino Road will begin this month by contractor Nicholls & Uttinger Civil Limited, and will take about three months due to the extensive nature of the repairs.

Works include drainage improvements, reconstruction of the slope with an earthfill buttress, and reconstruction of the road pavement.

 8,850 cubic metres of rock will be used to reconstruct the slope.

General Manager Infrastructure Services, Shyamal Ram says due to the geological conditions of the land under the road and the impact of continuous weather events, Mangarino Road will require significant works to reinstate the road back to two lanes.

“While it may seem we have taken quite some time before repair works could start, further investigation and a thorough assessment were required before a detailed design could be undertaken, as well as obtaining a contractor,” says Shyamal.

“We are pleased that construction will soon be starting, and we appreciate the understanding and patience demonstrated by those affected by the road closure.”

Mangarino Road will remain closed during construction.

We ask that the public and road users continue to be patient while works are underway.

Mangarino Road can still be used to access to Te Kūiti Cemetery and properties to the south of the site, however properties north of the site can access Mangarino Road via Hangatiki East Road.
